UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA. DEPARTMENT OF F^HARM CHAPEL HILL, N. C: IS8VKD FROM THE UXIVEISSITY PRE 1897. AKK OUK CEMEX T. The establishment of a Department of Pharmacy at the University of North Carolina marks an era in the progress of the pharmaceutical profession in this state. The first session of this school will begin September 10, 1897, when candidates will present themselves for registration. The advantages here offered will meet the requirements of the large number of students who are annually compelled to obtain their pharmaceutical education in other states. Briefly stated the advantages are as follows: 1. Thorough, careful individual instruction. 2. The practical experience derived from the active work in the laboratories and drugstore. ■ 3. Intimate association with the other departments of the University, to all of which the student of Phar- macy has free access, and the daily contact witli stu- dents pursuing various branches of learning. 4. The use of the large library and reading room and the well equipped gymnasium. FACULTY. EDWIN ANDERSON ALDERMAN, D.C.L.. President. EDWARD VERNON HOWELL, A.B., Ph.G., Professor of Phar- macy.

Five hours a week. PROFESSOR HOWELL. This course will consist of lectures upon the following' subjects, with practical demonstration and the employ- ment of proper apparatus whenever necessary. Metrology: comminution, heat, evaporation, distilla- tion, sublimation. Fusion: calcination, granulation, oxidation, reduction, etc. Solution: of solids, liquids and gases, deliquescence, efflorescence, etc. Colation: filtration, decolorization, clarification, pre- cipitation, etc. Maceration: expression, infusion, decoction, etc. Percolation: — and the preparation and study of the following: waters, syrups, honeys, glycerites, mucilag- es, mixtures, spirits, elixirs, liniments, collodions, tinc- tures, wines, vinegars and lluid extracts, Theory and Practice of Pharmacy. Second year. Five hours a week. PKOFESSOE HOWELL. The Senior course will take up in detail the official forms and preparations of drugs. Beginning with the inorg-anic compounds, the salts will be considered with regard to their commercial qualities and pharmaceutical uses and preparations. The organic compounds will be taken up commencing with the salts of the organic acids and passing to the natural and artificial organic compounds. The writing and criticising of prescriptions and the study of their incompatibilities will be taken up thor- oughly. Practical Course in Operative Pharmacy. ■ First year. Two hours, two afternoons a week. PKOFESSOK HOWELL This course will closely follow the lectures and will in some degree supplement them. Typical examples of the various official preparations will be made. A short lec- ture pointing out the difficulties in the work and the method of overcoming - them will precede the operations. Instruction will be g-iven in the preparation of tinctures, syrups, pills, ointments, suppositories, lozenges, granu- lar and crystallized salts, scaled iron salts, etc. Thorough ami practical instruction in active work will be g-iven in a drug" store in the town. Practical Course in Operative Pharmacy. Second year. Two hours two afternoons a week. PKOFESSOK HOWELL. During this course the more complicated operations will be carried out. The making and testing of various official preparations and also the assay of some of the most important drugs will be undertaken. Lectures on Pharmaceutical Botany. Three hours a week, one term. PKOFESSOK HOWELL. This course is preparatory to the study of Materia Medica, and takes up the study of the flower, the vari- ous topics of fruits, seeds, etc., and a careful study of the descriptive terms as applied to leaves, stems and roots. Lectures on Materia Medica. Three hours a week, one term. PROFESSOR 5IANGUM. This course consists of lectures on the geographical and hotanical sources of drugs, descriptions and uses of the same, together with their physiological and toxic effects. Opportunity will be given the student to familiarize himself with many of the crude drugs and their prepa- rations. Elementary Physics. Two hours a week. PROFESSOR GORE. This course extends throughout the entire year, being made as practical as possible and is abundantly illustrat- ed with experiments. The lectures embrace the simple problems of matter and energy, with special reference to the phenomena of heat, light and electricity. Experimental Chemistry. Three hours a week. PROFESSOR VENABLE. The elements are taken up in order and described, and this study is followed by the laws of their chemical com- bination and the compounds formed. The latter part of the course is taken up with organic chemistry. Analytical Chemistry, Toxicology and Urinalysis. Two hours PROFESSOR VENABLE AND ASSISTANT PROFESSOR BASKER- YILLE. Qualitative analysis. The student is made to per- form all the usual tests for the ordinary elements and compounds, so as to become familiar with them and be able to analyze qualitatively the ordinary substances met with. Toxicology and Urinalysis. The nature and action of the common poisons are studied and practice is given in the tests for them. The latter part of the course con- sists of qualitative and, in part, quantitative analysis of the urine, followed by the microscopic examination of urinary sediments. Elements of Physiology. Three hours a week, one term. PROFESSOR WILSON. Lectures, laboratory work, and demonstrations. A brief but practical study is made of the skeleton, joints, muscles, heart, blood-vessels, brain, eye, ear, and vis- cera. Demonstrations of bloodflow in the capillaries, phenomena of reflex action, microscopic structure of the chief tissues. General Biology. Three hours a week. (Fall term). PROFESSOR WILSON. Representative types of the great groups of animals and pi ants are dissected and studied microscopically. The forms range on the one side from the unicellular animals to the vertebrates, and on the other from the unicellular plants to the flowering plants. The structure of the cell and the nucleus, and the changes of the latter dur- ing division are included in this course. In the lectures the forms to be studied are briefly described, their rela- tions to other living- things are pointed out, and the principles which they illustrate are explained. The fundamental facts concerning- living; things are thus learned directly from nature in such a way as to develop the power of accurate observation, skill in handling in- struments, and method in the recording of notes. Botany. Laboratory and field work with recitations. Three hours a week. (Springf term). PROFESSOR WILSON. Representatives of the various orders of flowering plants are collected in the field, and are studied in the laboratory. Identification with Gray's Manual. The knowledge of structural and physiological botany gained in the General Biology course, is here supplemented on the systematic side. ARRANGEMENT OF COURSES. These courses are arranged over two years and lead up to the degree of Graduate in Pharmacy, (Ph.G.). During the first year the instruction will include The- ory and Practice of Pharmacy, Practical Course in Ope- rative Pharmacy, Elementary Physics, Experimental Chemistn', Elements of Physiology. During the second year, Theory and Practice of Phar- macy, Practical Course in Operative Pharmacy, Lec- tures in Pharmaceutical Botany, Analytical Chemistry, Toxicology and Urinalysis, General Biology, Materia Medica. EXAMINATIONS. 1 All students matriculating in the School of Pharmacy will be required to pass an examination in the usual ru- dimentary branches of English education. Final examinations will be held at the end of each term on the subjects embraced in the course. LABORATORIES. A description of the Chemical, Physical and Biologi- cal Laboratories will be found in the general catalogue. They are especially well equipped. The Pharmaceutical Laboratory is placed at the ser- vice of the students in Pharmacy. This is fitted up with desks, tables, water, gas and electric lights, and such apparatus and material as are necessary for the prosecution of their work. Recognizing the effectiveness of laboratory methods no pains will be spared to make this thorough and prac- tical. QUIZZES. Quizzes upon the different branches will be regularly held. Specimen quizzes upon Materia Medica, Chemis- try and Pharmacy will be held once a week and will con- sist in the recognition and correct writing of the official name of the specimens presented. EXPENSES. The fee for tuition in this department is seventy-five dollars, one half payable at the beginning of each term in September and January. A student in this depart- ment has no other fees to pay unless he occupies a Uni- versity room. Board costs from $8.00 to S13.00 per month. TEXT BOOKS. Remington's Theory and Practice of Pharmacy.
